Back in New York


Jim and Roy have been back in New York to decommission the Descension exhibit from beneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

The vortex exhibit is now being shipped back to Paignton for reconditioning so that it will be ready for the next exhibition being staged by Sir Anish Kapoor CBE RA.

The next location has not been confirmed as yet but we have a feeling we might be travelling in a more easterly direction. Watch this space!


#WinWithSeawork Competition

In the lead up to Seawork 2017 we were pleased to sponsor the final #WinWithSeawork competition.

The competition was a sweepstake hosted through the Seawork Facebook channel and promoted by the organisers through their newsletters, Twitter and Facebook pages.

The day before the exhibition opened the winner was announced, Heather Scott from Barton Marine.

Unfortunately Heather was not able to be at Seawork the following day so here is the prize, a Red Letter Day gift card, being received on her behalf by colleague Rob Lyne.

Have a great “Red Letter Day” Heather!
